Bass overbearing and hollow-sounding

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: The sound quality isn't all that great; specifically, the bass is way too strong and very hollow-sounding. There is also a persistent hum that is pretty annoying if the volume is low or there is no music playing (i.e. if the music isn't loud enough to cover it up). On the upside, they can be cranked pretty loud. I was able to use the equalizer software that came with another product to fine-tune the sound so it is reasonably good, but it took some time to get it there.

  • Summary: I don't know what i excepted for 85.00.The wire from the remote speaker is built into it and came up a little short for me so i had to buy some extension to make it work where i wanted it.Also the Base is not protected magnectly so put it at least two feet away like the manual directs you to.All in all for what i payed it's not bad.One more thing,i received no quick connect card with the guide.

Just Okay speakers

  • Summary: Reviews for these speakers are remarkably mixed as you'll see. Unfortunately, I must agree with the naysayers. For the price, these speakers are quite mediocre. In fact, at low volume, my Toshiba laptop's (Satellite P105) built in Harman/Kardon speakers sound noticeably better than these. I know, hard to believe, but true. The speakers do look nice. The right speaker has volume, treble and bass control as well as an on/off switch.

Hope you like bass.

  • Summary: I purchased these speakers primarily to replace the Altec Lansing ADA885 speakers that came with my Dell desktop computer 5 years ago. They don't even come close. Before one of the cables on the ADA885 system shorted, it was probably the best sound you could possibly get from computer speakers. Ask anyone that ever had the ADA885's. The VS 4121's are good for gaming, but not so good for music playing.

Something to consider ...

J. Osborn, Amazon
28 April 2004
  • Summary: The fair market value of ~$75.00 for these speakers is quite attractive, never-the-less, I returned my set a week after purchase and I will tell you why. 1) Sound quality is marginal at best. The highs are only apparent & clear if you turn the bass down to about 15-20% and the treble to about 55-60%. Without this adjustment, the sound is quite muddy and highs are lost to the droning lows.

  • Summary: They look great they , however have a perpetual buzz which, so I have learnt, is how they are...When playing my instrument this can be forgotten about until you stop playing
